Arson attacks on schools and other pubic structures in Limbe are now on the rise, according to a newspaper report.
On Monday June 20, some unidentified persons set fire inside a classroom at government practicing nursery school mile 1 Limbe, burning down the structure.
The Mile 1 nursery school incident, is just the latest in a series of attacks that have hit several schools and other structures in Limbe, the town of friendship as it is fondly called.
On June 17, the staffroom within the administrative block of Government High School Mbonjo at Down Beach Limbe, was equally razed to ashes by fire.
In the same strain, the administrative block of GHS Idenau in the West Coast Sub Division was, in the early hours of Friday, June 16, torched by unidentified persons. It should be recalled that the case of the administrative block of GHS Bonadikombo is still very fresh in the minds of Limbe denizens.
These attacks coupled with that of the Limbe market, many opined are linked to the city’s non respect of ghost town days.
For one thing, the Limbe Government Delegate’s organised match march against Ghost Towns, the burning of places and other violent acts is still yield fruits given the present rise in arson attacks.
Pundits are of the opinion that people need to be sensitised against such acts. To them, such acts will never lead to any positive change. Such burnings, many argue, are instead helping to drag development within the Anglophone communities backwards
